Hard to believe you can set a gay teen on fire killing him and only get 3 1/2 years in jail. Hard to believe but so is the case of 20-year-old Jordan Sheard who was involved in the death of Steven Simpson.
The BBC reported that Steven Simpson who had Asperger’s syndrome, a speech impairment and epilepsy, was dared to get into his underwear. When he did, Simpson, 18, was doused with tanning oil and Jordan Sheard set his groin on fire.
Steven Simpson later died after sustaining “significant burns”. It was also reported that Simpson had “gay boy” and “I love d*ck,” written on his body. Jordan Sheard plead guitly to manslaughter and was sentenced to 3 and a half years in jail.
